A few months ago I asked Linode(my VPS) if they would accept Bitcoin as payment. They said no. So, I went onto their IRC channel and asked the people there why not. I got laughed at and scolded.

So, today I tried it again. Again, ridicule. You would think that intelligent techies at Linode would be able to wrap their heads around Bitcoin a little easier than the average dolt. But no. They're too brainwashed. So, I really don't think begging and pleading and trolling their IRC channel is going to get Linode to accept Bitcoin. The only way that's going to happen is if they lose enough of their business.

What I want to do is move my website to another VPS that does accept Bitcoin and then write Linode a letter telling them why I've left. It won't do any good. But maybe if more and more people do it, eventually they will change.

Sadly, I'm happy with Linode's service otherwise. I'm not the smartes sysadmin. I'm actually a noob and was only able to build my own VPS because I followed some excellent instructions from the Linode Library and got a lot of help from the people in the IRC channel.

I really want to move to a VPS that can offer me the things I need and currently get from Linode. But my problem is that I don't know what those things are. I know I like Ubuntu Servers, I run a LAMP stack. Can somebody tell me if there is a kickass bitcoin VPS out there? There are a lot of production sites in the Bitcoin world, like bitcoinadvertisers, BitInstant, Mt. Gox, etc. Who is their webhost/VPS?

I really don't want to send $100 a month to Linode anymore. They are arrogant fuckers who are behind the times. Please help!

Just some links I've pulled.
I've seen momentovps.com around as well as BitVPS, but I can't necessarily vouch for either personally.

Our website is currently being DDoS'd. Other than that, none of our services are disrupted. You can join #bitvps on freenode or email sales@bitvps.com in the mean time if you have questions about our service. Or, I can answer questions here. :-)

Do you have any guess why you're being DDoSed? Also, is your server Xen, openvz? Can I run Ubuntu 12.04 with LAMP? Where are your servers located? How many clients do you have? Is your IRC channel friendly towards noob sysadmins who ask lots of questions?

Agreed with the above posters - Linode likely still have $200k in stolen bitcoin kicking about, so they're not likely desperate for more  Tongue

Have used momentovps, very good service, can't comment on bitvps but I've heard good things about them too Smiley

We can pretty much do whatever you want. We have around 85 customers and host about 120 virtual machines. RG is our admin who will help you along if you have any questions.

My site uses Cinfu VPS as a secondary server, at the moment it's basically only used for backups. Our main server is a robust dedicated server from Leaseweb, which doesn't accept bitcoins. I wish they did though.

They have both Xen and OpenVZ available, I would suggest you hit up IRC (freenode) and join #bitvps. The poor fool that is trying to run a DDoS will find out why that is a bad idea when rg wakes up.

Not for me it isn't:
